Finished size: 55” x 62”.

124 rows + border.

9 days to crochet.

I had to kind of figure out some rows of this pattern on my own because it wasn’t working out correctly. I only did ch2 at the beginning of each row instead of ch3 as called for.
For row 2, I did ch2 (counts as first dc), dc in first stitch, (skip 2 sts, 3dc in next st) across to last 3 sts, ending with 2dc in last stitch, turn.
For row 3, I did ch2 (counts as first dc), skip first 2 sts, (3dc bet next 2 clusters) to end of row, ending with 1 dc in last st, turn.
For row 4, I did ch2 (counts as first dc), dc in first st, (3dc bet next 2 clusters) across to last 3 sts, end with 2dc in last st, turn.
Rows 5 & 6 were as written except ch 2 for first st (148 sts each row).
For row 7, I did ch2 (counts as first dc), (skip next st, dc in next st, dc into skipped st - Xstitch made), to end of row ending with a single dc in last st, turn. (73 Xsts, 2 dc)
The rest was the same.

8/4/17: Border (w/Cafe Latte): sl st down each side for an even border. Then hdc around. For shell border, in each corner st, I did (dc, 4tr, dc) then for the short ends, I did (sc in next 2 sts, (dc, 2tr, dc) in next st) to next corner. Then I did another corner. Down the sides, I repeated sc in next st, skip 1 st, sc in next st, (dc, 2tr, dc) in next stitch.
